This is all sensible.  Due to time pressure the best thing really
is for us to check in a separate LTR module and test.  Then we face
bigger issues.  Do we add this quickly?  or do we add it as a requirement
for a general redesign for "ReportLab 2", whenever that might be.
I have no problem with simple attribute additions if it does not break
anything.  But there isn't really a containment mechanism in 
Platypus now.  I'll need to play with it to tell you what i think...
